I must admit, sometimes I get green with envy. And, it’s not pretty. Not like the beautiful chandelier featured above. Not bad or pathological of course and it’s not very often, I’m still normal {or so I think}. C’mon, please tell me I’m not the only one. Anybody?

They say, the first step to recovery is recognition. And before this feeling ate me up and start getting seriously depressed. I looked at it, I wrote about it, I pondered. I told my husband who of course, straightened me up right away and lovingly told me, it’s a bunch of crock. We started laughing, joked that I plan to join a support group for people who gets green with envy. It’s not a good feeling and it’s not right, I guess it’s why it’s one of the seven deadly sins. For a few hours or so, I felt sinful. So, I meditated and prayed. It’s fascinating how quieting the mind can make everything so clear.

We’re all unique with our own extraordinary journeys. As long as we know we’re doing our best, there’s no sense in comparing ourselves to others. It starts with being grateful. No need to join that support group…I’m just grateful for my own unique journey.

About Maureen

Details are my passion. From curating vignettes to designing spaces. I thrive in finding the finds and just discovered the art of collecting...all while sipping on a cafe au lait & a french macaroon in hand.
